Ten years after the first cook-off pitting the talents of the nation’s best seafood chefs from around the country against some of the most respected seafood culinary experts, the Great American Seafood Cook-Off expands to begin a new chapter under the leadership of four Gulf seafood institutions.
Renowned chefs from more than a dozen states are invited each year to gather in New Orleans to create unique dishes with domestic seafood that is native to their home states. Past funding for the event has been provided by the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and presented by the Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board.
At the start of a new decade for the event, NOAA continues to support this marque event through the Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commission. The Commission will partner with the Gulf Seafood Institute (GSI), and the Louisiana Restaurant Association and the Gulf and South Atlantic Fisheries Foundation and their marketing arm, the Gulf Seafood Marketing Coalition.
